The Valley of the Central Valley has two distinct seasons, the rainy season starts from November to March next year. Sun dried from April until October. The rice cultivation began in May when snow on the Sierra Nevada granite mountains melted down the two large river systems through the canal system and into the field Previously plowed. Farmers fill the pond with white water about 10 cm, then the plane will spread the seeds have been immersed. Grasses gravitate down, cracked, rooted and then firmly attached to the soil. About a week to ten days later, they would burst out of the water when the entire Sacramento area suddenly became a giant green velvet carpet. Pest and disease treatment is done by plane, and this is probably the reason why the American people divided the plots very well, very square, very straight. From the plane looking down, the glazed courtyards were blocked.
Farmers here are mostly from Europe, Germany, France and Italy who settled down a hundred years ago. Each household has an area of ​​300 to 5000 acres, which is about 150 hectares to 2000 hectares. Land wide, rice so much so they lay more, every family has many children, smooth life drift away life to another.
Harvest season is also the busiest season of the year due to the rice ripening in bulk and must be harvested before the rainy season. American farmers often use a large-scale rice threshing machine, costing a half-million dollars, a day's harvest of about 50 hectares. Paddy is not finished in the bag but discharged directly into the car tank on the shore and then to the dryer. In late September and early October, the dry season is here, the night is cold, but the day is sunny, the rice harvest is also starting from about 10 am when the field has dried up night dew. Large area and favorable weather should allow farmers to dry their own rice in the field and bring back the moisture content of paddy rice at between 20% -22%.

By the end of October, harvesting of rice is also at the beginning of the rainy season, the water on the rivers begins to plow into the fields after harvest. Dry straw will soak into organic compost. The grain of the paddy fell with the rest after taking away the seeds of the rice where insects thrive as an endless source of food for the relatives of migratory birds from the north to avoid the cold. Birds so much that they disturb the life of peace because of their bustling noise and also the season of rest, the hunting season of farmers after the hard crop. The rice is mainly Calrose, which is healthy, hard, large seeds, plastic rice, no fragrance. Rice yield is 10-13 tons / ha. Wading in the dry rice field, rice fields, trees crowded dense, but many loose seeds seem also clean disease.
The high yield of rice, large area, fully applied mechanized so Calrose rice sold very cheap price, compete with rice in Thailand and Japan in the world market. This is also the most popular type of rice used by Japanese sushi rollers.
American farmers are very happy, they decide the price of rice when selling, if the season is good, if the crop is not good, low yield due to lack of irrigation water prices will be pushed up. In addition, they are supported by the US Government and protect the domestic market by using non-tariff barriers as very high technical standards. For example, regulations on the content of residual chemicals in rice. This is also the reason why it is difficult for US rice. This issue leads the industry sector of Vietnam should consider imposing regulations or sanctions to strictly control the production, import and circulation of drug bvtv, which is also a way to go along with the business. We have the opportunity to bring rice to the United States, a huge market with more than 300 million people.
